I have to give the edge to Tyrranus just because of the plate. Godfrey's bullets would just bounce off the plate. Tyrranus might be left with a nasty bruise, that is I guess if DK's have that ability...maybe just a tender spot.. MMMmmmmm tenderized DK flesh!

Thats funny, they didn't seem to bounce off the DK can tank in my group last night.

I think your DK had the bad plate... its soft and squishy, and looks like swiss cheese after an encounter with Godfrey... Tyrannus has magical "Old God poo armor" no contest with the metal armors that the rest of us have!! :) (PS, i'm thinking about as if it was scaled the armor rating would scale too, and hence less damage would be taken)

Plate will not necessarily stop a bullet.http://www.theboxotruth.com/docs/buickot3.htm

Amusingly enough, gunpowder weaponry marked the end of the plate armor age, and while it made the occasional resurgence, it was not nearly as effective as it once was. Even an English longbow can pierce plate in the hands of a trained user. Plate is a ridged armor, not pliable like Kevlar, and even a deflection would likely lead to indents in the armor (and whatever was inside the armor.)In theory, Tyrannus' plate armor would have a chance at deflecting the occasional bullet, but if we're going to get that realistic, then Tyrannus would also be comparatively slow, walking around with a heavy weight in metal strapped to his body (note that his armor is much thicker then actual plate armor in the shoulders and helmet, which might make him look many but won't prevent a gut shot from turning his insides to sludge), and lugging around a weapon that big.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plate_armour
